New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
22 Then Moses led the people of Israel away from the Red Sea, and they moved out into the Shur Desert. They traveled in this desert for three days without water. 22 Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea and they went into the Desert of Shur. For three days they traveled in the desert without finding water.
23 When they came to Marah, they finally found water. But the people couldn't drink it because it was bitter. (That is why the place was called Marah, which means "bitter.") 23 When they came to Marah, they could not drink its water because it was bitter. (That is why the place is called Marah.)
24 Then the people turned against Moses. "What are we going to drink?" they demanded. 24 So the people grumbled against Moses, saying, "What are we to drink?"
25 So Moses cried out to the LORD for help, and the LORD showed him a branch. Moses took the branch and threw it into the water. This made the water good to drink.It was there at Marah that the LORD laid before them the following conditions to test their faithfulness to him: 25 Then Moses cried out to the LORD, and the LORD showed him a piece of wood. He threw it into the water, and the water became sweet. There the LORD made a decree and a law for them, and there he tested them.
26 "If you will listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his sight, obeying his commands and laws, then I will not make you suffer the diseases I sent on the Egyptians; for I am the LORD who heals you." 26 He said, "If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you."
27 After leaving Marah, they came to Elim, where there were twelve springs and seventy palm trees. They camped there beside the springs. 27 Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve springs and seventy palm trees, and they camped there near the water.
